The children were so excited when they arrived at school, all prepared with their wellies and packed lunches. The day went so quickly and smoothly. Mrs Brannigan, the leader from the Royal Forestry Society commented on how interested and well behaved the children were. Here are a few photos to show some of the activities we took part in.
We were very lucky with the weather on the trip days, it was so lovely to be outside! It was muddy in places but the children saw that as a bonus! We spent most of our time outside, walking through the woods, collecting natural objects, singing songs and then making dens for our special pebble people. The children were fantastic, they were a credit to our school.
The children were busy outside when we spotted a frog near the see-saw! We quickly moved the seesaw to protect him, then watched him jumping around. When it was time to go indoors the children were concerned that he might get injured if we left him, so we gently caught him in a box and took him to the pond. Later that day we visited the pond to see if we could find him. He was nowhere to be found but we did spot lots of frogspawn. We will keep visiting the pond and see if we can spot any more frogs. It was a total change to our plan for the day but very exciting!
We are always very busy in FS2! We want our children to have fun whilst also becoming independent learners.
